The Holland Family

My  Holland family appeared in the Hadleigh area in the late 16th century. There are indications of what may be the same family in the Groton area even earlier although they cannot be connected at the moment.

The Hollands were yeoman farmers and later "Ag Labs".

John didn't write a will as there is a record of a letter of administration being granted to Martha.

The Holland's time in Polstead is still recognised with a small pond south of the modern village still being known as Holland's Pond in the dell called Holland's Bottom; just a short distance to the south east of the Cock Inn. To quote a local history on Polstead published by Laurence S. Harley:

"....The ghosts of the past no longer appear, but we are told of the coach and four horses, driven into the pond at "Hellin's Bottom" after being bewitched by the old farmer who owned the land, and of their ghostly reappearance on the anniversary of the disaster until exorcised by the Rev. John Whitmore in the early years of the nineteenth century....."

Was the old farmer John or Elias Holland, I wonder?
